Who is the IICRC and why should I use an IICRC accredited business to clean my carpets, area rugs, and upholstered furniture?

The IICRC is the governing oranizaion over the carpet cleaning industry. They have a committee that creates and revises the IICRC standards which establish proceedures for the carpet cleaning process (also tile cleaning, hardwood cleaning, area rug cleaning, pet treatments, odor control, green products, and more). Also, the IICRC is an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) accredited standards developing organization. All of the IICRC Standards have gone through the ANSI accredidation prcess.

In addition to the creation and revision of standards, the IICRC also supports educational efforts by members. If you hire a member IICRC Carpet Cleaning Company then you are hiring an educated carpet cleaner. With the large variety of carpet fibers and protection products being used to condition the carpet fibers, it’s critical to have a professional carpet cleaner that understands the appropriate cleaning chemicals and protection chemicals to use for your application. Next time you call a Carpet Cleaner, ask them if they are IICRC approved. Look them up on the IICRC website to assure that they are in good standing. Visit the IICRC website at www.iicrc.org.
